This important manual contains illustrated step-by-step instructions for making locally produced health care equipment such as folding beds, ward screens, wheelchairs and mobility aides, designed to suit the community’s needs and resources, equipment which is both cheaper and more easily maintained than imported items. Ideas and designs are included for hospital furniture, tricycles, carts, physiotherapy and orthopaedics, laboratories, and maternity and child care. There is also information about basic construction and marketing methods and a list of resources from which further information may be obtained. The book is a starting point for medical teams, artisans and entrepreneurs to share knowledge and ideas and improve the local availability of appropriate equipment for health care.
